'Grey Gardens' wins Emmy, but Drew Barrymore was robbed!

Posted on

A big congrats to the entire team involved in HBO’s Grey Gardens, which won 6 Emmys last night including Best TV Movie (if you haven’t seen it, it’s now on DVD so there’s no excuse!). The amazingly talented Jessica Lange took home the Best Actress in a TV Movie award for her role as Big Edie and it was definitely a deserving performance. But I kinda feel like Drew Barrymore, who was borderline revelatory as Lil Edie and up for the same lead actress trophy, was sorta robbed. Both women gave undeniably incredible performances. I just simply thought Barrymore had the trickier role and showed range we hadn’t really seen yet in her other films. Watch the trailer below for a glimpse of Barrymore’s utter transformation.

What do you think PopWatchers? Did Drew deserve to win? Or was Jessica the better Garden girl?
